Bose is on the verge of replacing the QuietComfort Earbuds, introduced two years ago next month. Based on a substantial leak, the QuietComfort Earbuds II will take its place, which has a more compact design, up to 6 hours of battery life and active noise cancellation (ANC), among other features.

Roland Quandt and WinFuture have lifted the lid on the QuietComfort Earbuds II, replacements for the Quietcomfort Earbuds. To recap, Bose released the QuietComfort Earbuds in September 2020 alongside the Sport Earbuds. While both have large designs, the QuietComfort Earbuds II appear to be much smaller. Exact dimensions remain unknown at this stage, but Bose's promotional images show the QuietComfort Earbuds II sitting close against a model's ears.

Unsurprisingly, Bose's premium earbuds continue to support active noise cancellation (ANC), as well as offering USB Type-C charging via their bundled charging case. WinFuture has not revealed battery capacities yet, although the earbuds themselves should last up to 6 hours between charges. Presumably, this manufacturer battery life estimate only applies with ANC disabled. Also, the QuietComfort Earbuds II feature touch-sensitive areas for making multi-touch gestures.

Moreover, the earbuds will have equaliser support via the Bose app, available on Android and iOS. A firm release date has not leaked yet; WinFuture asserts that the earbuds will arrive in a few weeks. The website adds that Bose will sell the QuietComfort Earbuds II for US$229.99 in the US, with the earbuds likely available in the Eurozone for €229.99. Bose should offer the QuietComfort Earbuds II in two colours globally too, renders of which we have included below.
